What is Stainless Steel?

Stainless steel is a versatile mixture of iron and chromium known for its anti-corrosion and anti-stain properties. Depending on the grade of the product and additional materials added to the alloy, stainless steel can also be heat and fire-resistant which is why it’s so common in kitchen supplies. Stainless steel is low maintenance, and quite versatile and can be rolled into plates, bars, sheets, wire, or tubing, or used to create cookware, appliances, vehicles, and so much more.

Common Uses of
Stainless Steel

Most people associate stainless steel with the culinary industry. That’s because it’s commonly made into pans, utensils, appliances, and shelves you’re bound to see in a kitchen. Stainless steel is popular for the culinary industry and many other industries due to its anti-corrosive and anti-stain properties. Explore some of the common uses of stainless steel broken into two grades: 300 series and 400 series.

Stainless Steel Grades
and Style Guide

Stainless steel can come in over 150 grades but at Pennsylvania Steel, we carry grade 300 and grade 400.

Grade 300 is austenitic chromium and nickel alloy, making it the most corrosion-resistant stainless steel available. This attribute, along with its nonmagnetic and heat resistant qualities, also makes it one of the most commonly used stainless steel forms.

Grade 400 stainless steel can be both a ferritic or martensitic chromium alloy, meaning it is less resistant to corrosion but can come in magnetic or non-magnetic forms. Ferritic stainless steel is highly heat resistant, while martensitic can be hardened and crafted into objects.
